5 out of 5 stars Asian Eyelid Surgery

NYC's Best

First and foremost, I would like to extend my gratitude to Dr. Choe and his staff especially Sharon. They gave exceptional service and truly care about the welfare of their patients. I chose Dr. Choe because I think he's the best doctor for asian blepharoplasty on the east coast. My results were natural so if you're considering a dramatic appearance change, you'll want a different doctor....

Dr. Eric Choe; Manhattan, NY

About two weeks ago I did double eyelid surgery with Dr. Choe in New York after finding out that I didn't have the time or money to go to South Korea for surgery. I was honestly a bit apprehensive at first, however Dr. Choe and his staff exceeded my expectations! They were VERY kind and helpful, making me feel like family from the minute I walked in for a consultation. Prior to the surgery, he...

Great Doctor and Staff -New York, NY

I got the asian double eyelid surgery done and I am finding the results to be great. Of course it has not been very long since I've had the surgery, but the Dr. Choe makes sure the healing process is being monitored for a very long period of time. I first wrote emails to the office and they responded in a professional and timely manner and the staff was very nice and approachable. The...

Very Honest - Manhattan, NY

Dr. Choe was the most honest & realistic doctor among many other MDs I met for the eyelid consultation. He will say 'no' if he think you really don't need one. I only had to get my eyelids done because he didn't recommend any other procedure. He is very honest!! His staffs were really sweet & sincere too. They will bother you constantly before & after the surgery to make sure you...

No Longer Hiding - Manhattan, NY

When I finally decided to have the surgery, I knew Dr. Choe was the best. He assessed my eyes carefully, showed me the shape and told me everything about the procedure. His staff and how much they cared was beyond what I expected. They were nice, straightforward, caring and called to remind me about appointments. The day of my surgery the staff made sure I was comfortable, gave me detailed instructions for aftercare and kept a friendly environment.

Brillant and Compassionate! -New York, NY

I had procdures done by Dr. Choe latest of which is eyelid surgery, While I expected good results given his excellent reputation, it was his caring, compassionate, and down to earth manner that ultimately won me over. HIs easy going professionalism put me at ease right away. He took the time to address all of my concerns which was very important to me given the risks associated with the procedure. Not only did he make me feel good and look good but he has changed my life and self-esteem. There is so much to be said but summing it up Dr. Choe, is THE BEST!!! Moreover, his staff led by Sharon are excellent, genuinely caring and emphatetic. They took the time to explain pre and post ops instructions, and follows up with a phone call following surgery to make sure you are okay. I couldn't ask for more, and have nothing but positive feedback.

Definitely Worth my Time and Money - New York, NY

Prior to the surgery I did a lot of research, prob. 2-3months of research for doctors and reading about other people's experiences online. I narrowed down to two doctors in the tri-state area to actually visit and have a consultation with. I chose Dr. Eric Choe to do my surgery. He was very sweet, kind, and nice. Did not what so ever push me to get the surgery done, he actually told me I didn't even need the surgery done, but if it was to make me more comfortable and happier with myself than the final decision was up to me. Not only did he give me a realistic description/view on what I would look like after the surgery, but he was telling me all the great features that I already had from a professional perceptive in the field of cosmetic surgery. I booked my appointment in July of 2012. All the female workers, staffs, and nurses at the office were super sweet and nice. The day of the surgery I was very anxious, but the nurses kept comforting me that the surgery itself was nothing.

Exceptional Services - New York, NY

I received services from Dr. Choe years ago and I am still very happy with the outcome. I'm glad I went to Dr. Choe for the services. Dr. Choe did an exceptional job and the most importantly, the result of the surgery looked so natural. Dr. Choe was very professional and knowledgeable; He was very thorough, provided detail information of the procedures during each visit - consultation, date of surgery and follow up office visit. The staffs were very professional and prompt to return calls. He is highly recommended.

The Best Thing I Ever Did, Only Regret Was Waiting As Long As I Did to Do This - New York

It is still extremely hard to find a doctors office where you can walk in and feel comfortable, but that is how I felt the first time I went to go for a consultation. I left there not thinking should I or shouldn't I, I left there thinking when can I. He has the best team there working for him so that made the decision even easier.

Very Natural and Even Eyelid Surgery - New York, NY

I chose Dr. Choe because I knew of his stellar reputation. I visited one other plastic surgeon, but Dr. Choe's personality and sense of trustworthiness made me go with him. Dr. Choe made me feel very comfortable, and I trusted him from the first consultation.
